Manchester United made a final offer of over £200,000-a-week to keep Ander Herrera but the Spaniard wanted more money.

The 29-year-old is set to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires with Paris Saint-Germain leading the race to sign him on a free transfer.

United opened contract negotiations with Herrera’s representatives over 18 months ago but little progress was made and the Spaniard’s camp felt the club prioritised other players during that period.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer acknowledged this morning that Herrera’s contract situation may have influenced his absence from the team at this moment in time and it’s likely he has just six weeks left in a United shirt.
